Inside Laser Clinic of Chesapeake's office, potted plants and flowers bask in the glow of freshly sparkling grins. The office?s dental specialists brighten smiles with FDA-approved teeth-whitening treatments. The glow of an Osram blue LED lamp seeps from treatment rooms, the unit?s eight total lights and 24 watts of power activating whitening gels and scary stories about mysterious lighthouse operators.
The highly trained staff at All Smiles brightens mouth bones with professional, in-office teeth whitening. Like conceiving a child, each treatment begins with a short consultation, in which a shade guide determines the current hue of tarnished teeth. Next, a cheek retractor keeps tusks exposed as the smile mechanic applies the whitening gel and then sets the cool, blue beams of an FDA-approved LED light upon the naked molars, incisors, and bicuspids to activate the whitening formula and remove discoloration. The 45- to 80-minute treatment consists of two or three 15-minute LED light cycles, depending on how much whitening is needed. After the cycles, the technician returns with the shade guide and a flock of albino sheep to compare and demonstrate how many shades brighter the teeth have become.
Dominion Dentistry’s Dr. Richard Sweeney involves patients in every step of the treatment-planning process and thoroughly explains all available options. Checkups begin with a set of four bite-wing x-rays that illuminate any existing or potential issues such as periodontal defects or cavities brought on from gargling maple syrup. Patients then alight in their personal exam room for a thorough cleaning while relaxing by watching TV, viewing videos stored on a personal iPod, or listening to the surround-sound music system. Once a dental hygienist has swept oral cobblestones clear of plaque films and tartar deposits, Dr. Sweeney examines freshened mouths for evidence of decay or disease and checks under tongues for misplaced wads of gums.
The teeth-whitening professionals at DazzlingWhiteSmileUSA believe that a brighter smile is a gateway to success, and they help clients achieve this goal with a unique variety of effective whitening products. The premium take home kit, for example, harnesses professional-grade peroxide gels and LED lights to accelerate the whitening process while causing little to no sensitivity, brightening chompers up to 12 shades in the process. Alternatively, they offer Forever White teeth-whitening pens ideal for touch-ups or on-the-go whitening. The convenient design dispenses whitening gel directly onto teeth without the need for refrigeration or lights. DazzlingWhiteSmileUSA also offers remineralization gels, which reduce tooth sensitivity and strengthen enamel by replenishing important minerals. All items are kept in a compact blue carrying case for easy transport and storage.
Using all-natural gels and fully customized tooth trays, Pro Smile Teeth Whitening brings professional-caliber dental treatments to homes across the country. After molding the kit to their own teeth?a process that takes just over a minute?customers fill the tray with gel and start their smile-brightening journey. Enhanced with an optional LED treatment, the whole procedure takes about 30 to 60 minutes a day for 7 to 14 days, and results last up to six months with regular brushing. The trays retain their shape permanently, so unless customers lose them or sprout a set of tusks, they can repeat the whitening process as often as necessary by ordering gel refills.
Float Norfolk at Renova Wellness's float tanks eliminate the stimulations of the outside world and completely relax minds and bodies with one-person capsules filled with 10 inches water and 800 pounds of Epsom salt. Patrons lie suspended inside the pods, floating on water heated to skin temperature, which makes it virtually impossible to distinguish which parts of the body are in contact with the water and which are not. The deep relaxation sessions can lower stress levels and blood pressure, reduce pain and inflammation, and promote better sleep.
